Sharqi Peninsula (Back to Karkand)The Back to Karkand expansion for Battlefield will be released on December 13th for PC (and Xbox 360), EA and DICE confirmed today.

In an inexpicable move, PlayStation 3 owners get the expansion one week early, on the 6th of December. With EA running the show, money is everything I guess, but if the expansion is as good as hoped, I guess we can wait one more week?

Preorders included the Back to Karkand expansion pack, while others will have to buy it separately.

EA / DICE also announced that five new Trophies will be available for Back to Karkand:

  • Complete Warrior (Silver)
    Get a kill with the following weapons in a single life: Rifle, Jet, Tank
  • Third Tour (Bronze)
    Get a kill with the new APC, Desert Buggy, and STOVL fighter jet
  • Gunslinger (Bronze)
    Get 10 kills with all B2K weapons
  • Like a Boss! (Silver)
    Get a kill with the skid loader
  • Jaws (Bronze)
    Take a swim in the pool at the Oman hotel
